How does Restylane Silk work?

With aging, the lips and the lines around the mouth, like other areas of the face, get older. Facial aging results in lip thinning, lost of shape around the cupid’s bow, and an increase in vertical lines above the lip. Smoking can also cause premature aging of the lips with associated smoker’s lines and loss of lip volume. Restylane Silk and Belotero are designed specifically to provide natural-looking results in these particular areas by using smaller, smoother particles than those used in other Restylane® products.

What are common side effects of Restylane Silk and Belotero for Lip Enhancement?

The most common side effects of lip filler injections are swelling, redness, pain, bruising or tenderness. Lip filler side effects are typically temporary. Side effects of lip augmentation are typically mild in severity and resolve in 2-7 days after treatment. Serious but rare side effects include delayed onset infections, recurrence of herpetic eruptions, and superficial skin loss and scarring at the injection site. Patients using blood thinners including aspirin or non-steroidal antiflammatory medicines may experience more bruising than patients not on these medications. Patients on Fish Oils or herbals may also have increased bruising.
